Three years ago, our dear friend Daniel McGowan was among the first people
arrested as part of an FBI offensive against environmental activists and
others. Daniel began serving his seven-year sentence in July 2007. In August
2008, Daniel was moved to the Communications Management Unit in Marion, IL, a
facility that bypassed the usual review process and severely restricts inmates'
communication with the outside world.

To mark the three-year anniversary of Daniel's arrest, please join us to learn
more about Daniel's situation, the Communications Management Units, and our
campaign to pass the Federal Prison Work Incentive Act (or "Good Time Bill") -
a bill to restore good time allowances toward service of Federal prison terms.

Learn what you can do to support these endeavors for liberatory social justice
and toward bringing friends and families together.

Please ask your congressperson to support the "Good Time Bill". (Find your
congressperson here:  http://www.visi.com/juan/congress/index.html)

Thank you again for all your support!
-Friends of Jeffrey Free Luers
